On par with Battleship‘s April release date, Rihanna’s movie promo poster has been revealed. The good chicka gone bad, is covered in dirt and tatts, and she armed with a very big gun. The poster’s obvious aim is to convince us mere mortals that Rihanna’s character, US Navy officer Raikes, is a hotty able to whoop anybody’s azz and take names later. Welp, did it work?
Battleship which also stars Liam Neeson, Alexander Skaarsgard, Brooklyn Decker and Taylor Kitsch is set at sea where a group of international navy ships come under attack from an alien enemy during an ‘international naval war games. D*mn thing looks like the Predator, but I digress.
“I just want to pick films that are wise for me and roles that I can pull off, nothing that is too big for me. I love doing movies now. It’s something I want to do more of.”
During an interview with MTV, the Battleship director Peter Berg, raved about her performance. He said, “she was great. She has a very strong part. I was surprised no one had ever thought to hire Rihanna. I was a huge fan of her videos. Obviously she’s sexy, but she had this real intensity. I’m like, Someone’s going to get her.” And he got her.
Battleship is due for release in the US on May 18, yet the promo poster totally contradicts that.
